> Assuming the Binary Client Protocol spec should be detalized enough to allow 
> a client development basing on the spec only, w/o looking at other client 
> implementations and asking additional questions...
> The following should be clarified / corrected in the Binary Client Protocol 
> spec (v.2.4) 
> (https://apacheignite.readme.io/v2.4/docs/binary-client-protocol#section-data-format):
> Type Codes table:
> -----------------
> - UUID (Guid) size: should be 16 bytes, not 8 (?) 
> - what is Object array (type code 23) ? What is the difference between it and 
> Objects Wrapped In​ Array (type code 27) ?
> - what is Collection USER_SET ?
> - what is Collection USER_COL ?
> - what is Collection SINGLETON_LIST ?
> - Collection: misprint: should be "... + length ..."
> - what is Decimal ?
> - what is Timestamp ?
> - what is Time ?
> Complex Objects:
> ----------------
> - what does flag USER_TYPE mean ?
> - Schema "field Id; Java-style hash code of field" -> should be "... of field 
> name".
> - "Repeat for as many times as the total number of schemas you have" -> 
> should be "... total number of fields you have".
> - is it mandated that the number of fields in the Schema must be equal to the 
> number of fields in the Data Object ?
> Objects Wrapped In​ Array
> ------------------------
> - may binary objects with different type codes be in the same array ?
> - may complex objects with different type ids be in the same array ?
> - "All cache operations return complex objects inside a wrapper (but not 
> primitives)." -> does it mean that in general a complex object (103) must 
> always be sent via the Binary Protocol in a wrapper (27)? 
> - "Byte array size" -> "Payload size" or "Size of the whole array with 
> header" ?
> - Offset. What is "object graph" here ? The Binary Protocol nowhere describes 
> any relations ("graph") between data objects in the protocol.
> Terminology
> -----------
> Not critical but would be really convenient to define and use the same terms 
> along the whole spec. For example:
> - "binary object" is always the same as "data object" of any type (?). Can be 
> "standard/predefined type object" or "complex object".
> - "cluster" or "server" ?
> - "cluster member" or "server nodes" ?
